Pathfinder Online

Pathfinder Online is a MMORPG under development, based on the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Completion of development is uncertain due to layoffs of most of the development team and no major publishers signed.[1]

DevelopmentEdit

A computer game adaptation of the Pathfinder universe, Pathfinder Online, was announced on November 27, 2012 by Goblin Works and Paizo and was successful in attracting Kickstarter crowdfunding[2][3] in 2013 to finance its development.[4] An official alpha test was announced in late June 2014.[5] Early enrollment was announced on July 29, 2015.[6]

On September 2, 2015, Lisa Stevens, acting CEO of Goblinworks and CEO of Paizo Publishing announced layoffs at Goblinworks of most of the Pathfinder Online development team.[7] As of March 2016, the project was in the process of transitioning to a new developer.[8]

On March 17, 2017, a roadmap for the future development of Pathfinder Online was posted on Goblinworks's blog.[9]
